Alright, Keyword Girl

So remember this post? The one where I said we had to memorize from 1 John? I was preeeeeetty nervous about that. {Still am, actually.}

But I figured out something that works for me!

If I write out the verses and leave blanks for any keywords/important words, I'm not left stumbilng through the "and, which, the, in, by, have, is, to" stuff! I can remember the key words and the more I read through it all, the easier it's becoming to memorize.
{This stemmed from Courtney's advice to write the verses 3 times - thanks Courtney!}

Of course, now we're on to 8-14... which is scary. After this week, I will probably have more scripture memorized than I ever have before.
{Kind of like, I think I've read more in the past year than I ever have, and I've run more in the past 3 weeks than I ever have... God's doing some cool stuff with me this year!}

Any other advice for memorization??


  1. flash cards, uploading you (or someone else) saying the verses to your iPod or something that you can listen to, and re-reading them always help me out (depending on what I need memorized).

    Hope it helps!!

  2. That is a great idea Sarah!! I never thought of that...you so smart! :) Oh and you're welcome...I do what I can. :D


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
